Sixth Form Life
There are a variety of extra-curricular activities open to students in the Sixth Form including an extensive and relevant enrichment programme encompassing guest speakers, workshops and opportunities to excel beyond the classroom. Sixth Form life is about taking new opportunities and meeting new people and so joining a new activity, society or mentoring programme is actively encouraged. There are a wealth of activities that all Sixth Formers are encouraged to take a part in and help run, as well as a host of societies that are an offer, for students to belong to.
Sixth Form students are role models to the rest of the school which cascades down to younger students, helping create the community undercurrent that runs throughout the school. All Upper Sixth students are prefects and have the opportunity to apply for Head Prefects and Senior Prefects.
Roles and Responsibility
Sixth Form students are encouraged to act as role models and to play a significant part at the forefront of the school. Developing skills in teamwork and leadership, communication and presentation, problemsolving and tolerance, is a vital part of preparing you
for the future. All Year 13 students are Prefects with additional positions of responsibility available; Head Prefect, Deputy Head Prefects, Sports Captains, Mentors in Maths and English and form group mentors, providing a valuable point of contact for younger students.
The Social Team takes responsibility for planning the Sixth Form Christmas Party and the Leavers’ Ball, as well as organising Leavers’ hoodies and the final afternoon of Year 13’s time in school. They help to ensure that the Sixth Form is a vibrant and cohesive community as well as gaining valuable experience in leadership and organisation.
Sport, drama and music remain a prominent part of Sixth Form life, regardless of which A Levels you are studying. You can represent your team at sports fixtures, take part in the Senior School production (either on the stage or behind the scenes) or sing in a school choir. Sixth Formers are also encouraged to help in the running or organisation of activities, or even start their own. Sixth Form life is also about taking new opportunities and meeting new people, so joining a new activity is always encouraged!
In addition, we support our pupils in competitions in equestrian. Pupils are welcome to join our equestrian team from the age of 8 years and upwards. The team is run by a fully qualified instructor and parents. Hull Collegiate School is a registered member of the NSEA (National School Equestrian Association). Pupils compete at various equestrian disciplines – Showjumping, Dressage and Eventing at prestigious inter-school equestrian competitions throughout the country.
Freshly-prepared lunches are included within tuition fees. A range of hot and cold options are served daily, with specific dietary needs catered for. Sixth Formers can have their meal at any point during the lunch break, or during period 4 if they are not in a timetabled lesson.
The Sixth Form uniform is tailor-made for each student creating a professional, purposeful and business-like image. The uniform is unique to Hull Collegiate School and is compulsory for all Sixth Form students to wear.
